I’ve always loved the Kenneth Slessor poem, Five Bells, written about his mate Joe Lynch who drowned in Sydney Harbour (he fell off a ferry on his way to a party).
Anyway, I had a crack at reading Five Bells on the RRR show. I lopped off the opening invocation, just to shorten it a bit. I also made a couple of small mistakes – apologies to the purists.
My mate Mike Thatcher recorded it, mixed it and produced it – thanks Thatch!
